Big questions, big ideas and big debates about the future. That's what the podcast series 'Studio 2030' from Ageas (https://ageas.com) is all about. What does the future bring, and how can we all navigate our way towards success? Hosts Ianka Fleerackers and Viola Zsédely-Takács, the coordinator of Ageas internal think tank “Think 2030”, invite guests to discuss the trends that may change the way we think about the world.

The rise of sustainable investments
Ageas is directing a large part of its investments towards investments that make a positive contribution to the transition to a more sustainable world. Going for a sustainable investment approach sounds easy, right? Just go for the “green” one! The reality is somewhat more complex…
And does “All things green” necessarily translate into sound investment decisions? In a world where terminology like “greenwashing” has entered the lexicon, how can we be sure investments are sustainable in reality? We asked these questions to our Chief Investment Officer Wim Vermeir and David Veredas Professor at Vlerick Business School in a new episode of the Ageas’s Studio 2030 podcast.
Europe's challenges & opportunities for the coming years
The past couple of years have been very turbulent, with the pandemic, a sharp economic contraction, and a strong vaccine-induced economic rebound all in quick succession. The coming years will be dominated by adjustments to the new reality. However deeper trends like climate change or the rise of China will become even more important. But what does this all mean for Europe? Can Europe embark on an economic and political renaissance, and will it be able to turn the known challenges into opportunities?
In this podcast Antonio Cano discusses the outlook for Europe with economist Peter De Keyzer.
Stay tuned for more big questions, big ideas and big debates about the future!
